After the success of Victoria and Abdul and Mary Magdalene we are delighted to be partnering once again with Damaris Media to offer you this free resource for the film Edie, in cinemas from 25th May. Members, churches and the wider public can download our Companion Booklet which explores the issues addressed within the film from a biblical perspective.
Edith Moore (Sheila Hancock), known as Edie, is a woman in her eighties. In the months following her husband’s death, her daughter Nancy (Wendy Morgan) plans for her to move to a retirement home - and Edie feels like it is the beginning of the end. It seems she will die still carrying all the regrets of her past. One regret haunts her most of all. When Edie was younger, her father planned a climbing trip for them in the Scottish Highlands. She yearned to go, but her husband made her stay at home. Now nearly thirty years later, Edie decides to make the trip alone. As Mt Suilven looms ahead, she realises how daunting the climb will be. She hires Jonny (Kevin Guthrie), a local man, to help her prepare - sparking an unexpected friendship, and an adventure which will change her life.
We believe the themes running through “Edie” particularly with regards to conforming to expectations, dealing with regret and renewal make this film a great way to promote interesting dialogue with your group. We hope that you will enjoy watching this wonderful movie, and that this free Companion Booklet will help guide an interesting group/branch session.
